Dirt Candy's Dim Sum Brunch
Dirt Candy is located right on the border of Chinatown so we've been dying to do a dim sum brunch for a long time, and finally the stars have aligned and the time is right. Teaming up with longtime neighbor, Jonathan Wu, chef at Fung Tu, we'll be offering up a full-on, no-holds-barred, super-giant, ultra-deluxe dim sum brunch on Sunday, August 13th!
Jonathan and I are splitting the menu, with about 12 to 14 different dim sum options in total. We're both still going back and forth over what we're doing, but we've been talking about Carrot Buns, Edamame Dumplings, Corn Dumplings, Sesame Biscuits with Lychee Jam...trust me, this is going to be huge. Everything is priced from about $4 - $7 per dish (tip included) and we may even have a dim sum cart prowling the room.
You can make a reservation online or by calling the restaurant (212-228-7732) but we'll also be seating as many walk-ins as possible, so come on down. There's no regular menu that day, although our full bar will be open with a special Dim Sum Brunch Bloody Mary, a special mimosa, cold brewed coffee, and everything else you might want to pass through your liver.
This has been a dream of mine for years, but it's only a couple of months ago I found the time to experiment with dim sum and see what we could do. I've known Jonathan forever and he's a master at this kind of thing. So I guarantee, on Sunday, August 13, the best dim sum in Chinatown will be at Dirt Candy.
